A pitiful dude lifts a barbell but this time, he doesn’t turn into Edu Manzano. Watch how Richard Gutierrez portrays characters polar opposites of each other: poor-ass Teng and the brawny Captain Barbell. A Mars Ravelo creation, this TV version features a stellar cast: Ricky Davao, Jackie Lou Blanco, FHM babe Camille Prats, Paolo Bediones, and Richard Gomez. Lovely newcomer Rhian Denise Ramos essays the role of Teng’s love interest. The best thing about it, though, is this hero doesn’t dress in spandex!
There are unconfirmed reports that GMA and Regal films will team up once again for a full-length feature film edition of the fantaserye.
